Damn it.

Newegg has another sale on the F3 1TB. Should I go for 3 of them or are there diminishing returns?

Hard to pass up at $50.

you could go with them and have a 4 way raid, but If I was you I'de get that 60gb sata 3 6gb/s ssd they have on sale right now, and raid it up with your current ssd, 4tb is just overkill except for the slight speed increase, but at the same time remember more drives= more chance for failure

But now I'm wondering if I should use RAID5 instead? What is the performance like on this board? I'm trying to look up reviews, but I don't want them going out of stock in the meantime

I don't see the value in RAIDing the SSDs. In particular, my C300 has really low 80MB/s write speeds, which would hobble hte vertex, and the vertex read speeds aren't as fast as the C300, so it would be the worst of both worlds, plus no TRIM. Honestly, what practical purpose is there to having faster SSDs? They're already super fast. Having two C300s to get ~120MB/s writes would be nice, but on such a small drive, 80MB/s really is enough. All my mass storage needs are going to be taken care of on the much faster F3s.

My 2x F3 1TBs have 270MB/s writes and 250MB/s reads in RAID0 (on the first 700GB partition). Can anyone give me a rough idea of what 3x would do in RAID0 and RAID5? The idea of having all my data backed up with RAID5 is really intriguing since it is much mroe efficient than trying to do full backups on my 2TB Seagate.

I have 2 HDD hooked up to the jmicron controller and when the screen shows up at boot the only thing it says is "press any key to continue", I want to use the jmicron to set up the disks in a RAID 1 but how do I configure the controller if I can't get into the setup.
Maybe I am missing something but this isn't my first rodeo.

I have been playing with raid for some time now on this mobo, as far as I can tell, raid cannot be configgured on the JB micron ports, Although I havent tried setting it up from within windows using amd raid xpert
post #549 of 10159
From what I understand AMD RAID xpert is only for the SB not the jmicron, also it is a jmb362 so it should be able to do RAID.

One thing that I thought was interesting though was that the jmicron drivers for the jmb36x controllers installed perfect but when I tried to install the jmicron RAID configurator software to manage the controller from within windows it says that it can't find a jmb36x controller but it is listed in device manager?

Anyone having any luck with core unlocking? My 555BE won't let me do anything but lock up my computer if I play with the settings for core unlocking with this board. My old board had it unlocked and running 12+ hours of Prime95 stable as a 4.0ghz x4.

I may be missing something but just wanted to check on here, i'll be upgrading to bulldozer and have an old Phenom II X4 i'm using now but it doesn't overclock like my 555 did on my old board.
